Religious Accommodation for COVID-19 Vaccine Memo
All student-athletes parent(s)/guardian requesting a religious accommodation MUST complete this form and submit the form directly to DOE Civil Rights Compliance Branch Equity Specialist Dee Sugihara at [email protected].
ALL accommodation requests will be decided by the CRCB and NOT by the school itself. The CRCB will be contacting each parent/guardian directly for additional information prior to making a determination. Once a determination is made by CRCB, CRCB will notify the school as well as each family of the decision.
ALL CRCB religious accommodation decisions will be FINAL and there will be NO appeals process regarding the decision. If a religious accommodation is granted, each student-athlete will have to provide two negative covid tests per week. Test results must be submitted to the athletics head coach or to the athletic director.
Failure to stay up to date with two weekly negative covid tests will result in student-athletes being prohibited from participating in athletics until test results are brought back up to date.
